Broken ankle for Zamora

Published Add your comment

Fulham striker Bobby Zamora is facing at least a four-month lay-off after sustaining a broken ankle in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Wolves.

Zamora suffered the damage to his right leg during a hard challenge from Wolves skipper Karl Henry and received oxygen before being carried off on a stretcher and taken to hospital.

Fulham manager Mark Hughes revealed that he could be out for longer if surgery reveals further damage, and said: "If the injury is as we think it is, it's likely to be four months. If the surgeon goes in and finds other damage rather than just the break, which is four centimetres above his ankle, it will be even longer than that. The four months looks like a minimum."
